Observant visitors to the recent Motor Show in Geneva will undoubtedly have noticed that the "MANSORY SANGUIS", based on the Bentley Continental GT, was on 22-inch wheels surrounded by the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti, which was also making its world debut. This announced to the world that Apollo Vredestein and MANSORY are teaming up with each other as high-class partners.
Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, McLaren, Porsche, BMW — just a few of the many brands that have received a unique and high-profile customisation from MANSORY, a company based in Southern Germany. The predominantly wealthy customer base is not just looking for a unique and spectacular car, but also has extremely stringent requirements — just like MANSORY itself. And because only the very best is good enough, the German specialist is increasingly opting for the Ultra High Performance tyres from Vredestein.
Carbon as uniting feature
It is not only the special wheels that catch your eye when it comes to cars from MANSORY. The wide-ranging use of carbon (carbon fibre) also stands out. MANSORY has come to specialise in this material to such a degree that it even produces parts for other car manufacturers. If you look at the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti R, which was designed in collaboration with Giugiaro, then you will also notice carbon accents on the sidewalls and in the tread as important design features. From that perspective too, this tyre also fits the creations from MANSORY perfectly!
Tyres for the tough guys
The fact that the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti and Ultrac Vorti R are suitable for large, fast cars was demonstrated at the Geneva Motor Show by the two special versions of the Mercedes-Benz G class. MANSORY presented its interpretation of this SUV—the Speranza and the Gronos—at the show. These are top-class eye-catchers with lots of attractive details, especially in the interior. These two four-wheel drive bruisers have no problem handing the power of their V8 engines thanks to the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti, which is perfectly suited to this type of car.
Top model: The Ultrac Vorti R
As mentioned, Apollo Vredestein introduced its latest Ultra High Performance tyre, the Ultrac Vorti R, at the Geneva Motor Show. The emphasis is on grip and sporty driving ability under the most extreme circumstances, such as on a racing circuit. The Ultrac Vorti R was developed in close collaboration with Italian design company Giugiaro, and the carbon accents on the sidewall and in the tread are a special design feature. The Ultrac Vorti R is supplied with speed rating (Y), which indicates that this tyre is suitable for speeds exceeding 300 km/h.
